This is to ensure that smallholder farmers get increased quality yield from their farms. To sustain their production activities, Agripreneurs Africa pilots innovative programs with smallholder cooperatives and individuals. Some of the programs are pilot irrigation, greenhouse and community partnership projects. This aims at increasing climate change resilience and decreasing environmental damage.
We have two main production-supported initiatives:
Agripreneurs Africa Community Farms (AACF)
Consistent with our mission, Agripreneurs Africa Community Farms has integrated Educational program within the community farm model. This program enhances the economic viability of farms while providing shareholders opportunities to participate in our educational and production projects in their communities. This is a mutually beneficial arrangement, one that strengthens community bonds as shareholders become members invested in the mission.
Sustainability of local working farms is central to the mission of Agripreneurs Africa Community Farm- “to promote, support and manage farms in the community and community farms.”
Agripreneurs Africa Community Farm offers a range of educational programs for both youth and adults. We provide Learning Garden Programs, Practical Skills Workshops for Adults, Volunteer Opportunities, Farmer Training, and a variety of public events that enable community members to experience and learn from the farms.
